Campaign successfully funded on: 11 Oct,2017
Dear friends, family, and music supporters:
I'm a singer-songwriter from Jordan. I've spent the past few years performing my own music, as well as launching music projects behind the scenes in the Arab indie music scene. Last year, I headed back into the studio to record.
I'm currently working on an album, 'Nasi', that reflects a new sound for me, one that is a change from my past acoustic material. I need your help raising funds to complete the album, and send the music on its travels across screens, borders, and stages, to ultimately settle in hearts and connect with minds, in a way that only music can.
How you can help:
Whatever you can contribute - big or small - it all makes a difference. And if you can't contribute financially, you can contribute by sharing the video above, or by sharing this page, it may reach others who can.
What I love about Zoomaal is that provides a community solution for musicians from our region. We work within an infrastructure that doesn't enable musicians to be fully self-sustaining. So here I am, I've saved up what I can and now I am asking you to be an active collaborators on Nasi.
How does it work?
Just click 'Fund This Project' and follow the instructions to contribute online. If you want to support us but you prefer offline payment in JD, please get in touch with +962 7 7500 8008.
What does the money cover?
So, the target number is $35,000. The cost breakdown divides roughly into:
What do we do if we get the funding?
Here are the milestones below - we only get the funds for each section if we reach the milestone, so the first one is all or nothing!
We launch an EP
We launch a full-length album
We add a music video
We upgrade our release show
If we reach this milestone, we can produce and release an EP (4-5 songs), and leave the rest of the songs for future recording.
If we reach this milestone, we will be able to include all new songs into one album that captures my sound as it stands today.
The title track will have a music video! We already have a very talented director on board. All that's left are the funds and a two-day shoot.
|Our release show will include more musicians on stage (think strings and brass!), and live video footage of the songs to promote and use for future bookings.|
Small tokens that express big gratitude. The rewards listed are a way for me to thank you for collaborating on this album with me, from limited edition items to a private performance set.
Thank you for being a part of Nasi!
Hello lovely people,
You made it happen! Because of you, we were able to reach the second milestone by the end of this campaign, and I can't thank you enough for the support you've given, and for being a part of making this album with me. I felt so much love throughout this process, and I hope you can feel the love I am radiating right back at you.
Now that the crowd-funding is over, I will be practically living in the studio, taking in all this positive encouragement and hopefully turning it into something you can enjoy through music.
For those of you that opted for rewards, your rewards are being lovingly created and packaged, and will be delivered to you as soon as they are ready.
Stay tuned for more updates this month!
Filled with gratitude,
